How to correctly torque multiple fixings to ensure even gasket compression

November 13, 2018


Correctly torque pump components with multiple fixings to ensure even gasket compression and a perfect seal, specifically describing the tightening sequence and torque settings for each pass.

Whilst the video uses a pump casing to describe the correct process, the same principal can be applied to any component with a similar bolting pattern (including fewer bolts in the pattern).

Required tools:

  • Feeler gauge
  • Torque wrench – relevant sized socket
